Seller: whatisit007 (661) 100%, Location: Cassopolis, Michigan, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 264666286228 Scarce Patent Date July 1, 1870 Hinged Harness Tack Hook Very Good Condition *****Scarce Patent Date July 1, 1870 Hinged Harness or tack Hook Very Good Condition for its age This was in the 1801 (Year Built) Barn on my family EstateIn the harness tack holding room which was mid central in the barn.I took these out of the wall, and repainted these in my barn about 20-25 years ago or so. I sold my victorian property to downsize and free up time and I keptthese as I had use for them in this home. I have used 14 of these on the back porch in the home I just restored, and this is an extra one I probably never will use.They are well made and I do not figure the ones I have are likely to break. The weight of this will surprise you. It is pretty heavy for its size. It is about 7” long from tip of screw base to the topOnce screwed in the size of head would be about 4” sticking out.Width of head closed is about 2” (opened about 3 1/2”Metal is about 3/16” or so at the hinge Very Very Unique. Heavy Metal Very slight bend to the screw section but not adverse and is slight. Has alway been inside in the original harness room in the barn. I will be honest. I have been to hundreds of auctions in my life time and visited many an antique shops as well. I have never saw one of these beforeoutside those that were in our barn. Never. Every person that was in the tack room and noticed them commented on how unique they were. I would say this is in very good to exceptional condition for the age and consideringit spent most of its life in a barn. This item was patented just short of 150 years ago. That is older than I am. :0) Has Patent Date July 1, 1870 as near as I can make out.I did not have magnifer to look but that is what it looks like to me. ******* PICTURES ARE A PART OF THE DESCRIPTION OF THE ITEM BEING SOLD.

Buyer's assume all risks with regards to any items purchased by Buyer if the delivery process shows an inaccurate, insufficient or undeliverable address to deliver to. Refunds will not be issued because the Buyers "shipping to" address ends up being inaccurate, insufficient or undeliverable... as the responsibility of having a correct address falls on that of the Buyer.

I Will Leave Positive Feedback "AFTER" the Buyer Has Left Positive Feedback to Me.Just a Comment on Vintage itemsWhy? Because I like old Vintage items. :0)VINTAGE, RETRO, ANTIQUE & OLD ITEMS THEY ARE SO COOL Please remember that Vintage and Antique items will show some wear, blemishes, and imperfections that they have acquired though the years. Old magazines, books, publications, booklets and manuals may come with wear, age spots & page discoloration. Some may have a slight age or other odor from aging. It's a natural process. I collect or have collected many Vintage items over the years and I personally feel this adds to their character, charm and shows that the background and history of the pieces as being authentically old and thus making them more in demand, collectable and desirable to those that enjoy and/or collect them. Remember that even a vintage item in really good condition is old and it may not function as well as when it was originally made. Plastic type and other items can change color and/or weaken over time because of light, pollutants, heat, humidity and other items in the air. So if you intend on using a Vintage item, please be aware of this, and be careful. We can not control how you use them. They may be more subject to breaking just because of the fact they are old. Yet other items were made better back then, then similar items made today, so you alone have to make your decision to buy and item or not. With that said when we are selling Vintage & Antique items we are selling them for collectors value, and likewise if you break an item after it is sold, this is not our fault, as vintage and antique items are usually old when we sell them. We strive to describe the item being sold as honestly as possible. We are not perfect and if we miss something we apologize in advance and just know it was not intentional. As with all the items we sell, we sell these items As IS and with all faults "if any". Happy Ebaying. gsrxvers859 (GS 7.0.21 (859))
